The mother of a young boy who saved the life of five people after he died has backed an appeal for more members of the public to sign up to the organ donation register.
Erin Lappin said she takes comfort every day from knowing three-year-old son Stewart's donations gave a new lease of life to an adult and four children, including two babies born after his death.
Stewart died when he stopped breathing at home on January 23 2010. He was rushed to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Glasgow, but when his parents found out he could not be saved they asked doctors if he could become an organ donor.
